Big Mouths/Small Brains

Why do the most bombastic voices always come from the fuzziest thinkers?

I guess they're desperately trying to convince themselves. They're essentially shouting at themselves (clearer thinkers convince themselves via subtler means - i.e. thinking). If you step back and view everything with some distance, it's shocking to realize how much human communication is actually self-directed. I honestly think it's close to 95%. Maybe a lot more.

It's so adorable to hear people describe certain other people as "narcissistic". It's like birds diagnosing each other as "flighty".

The big mouths tend to drown out quieter voices. Thanks for the tip on those pears. Omfg. Early Christmas treat!
